Early production rot free TR6, LHD For Sale (1969)
|Very original rust free and unmolested early production California wire wheel car, build date January 1969.|
I purchased the car in 2002 when I was living in California and stored it in the back of my workshop, I imported it into the UK last year after moving back here.
These early cars are becoming highly desirable and being a very early USA export car it has very few differences from the home market version, these being, Stromberg carbs, compression ratio, and longer (deeper) bumper brackets which are easily altered to home market specs.
The car was stored off road for 30 years and at some point the cylinder head was removed, rebuilt but never reinstalled. I have installed the rebuilt cylinder head, replaced the rear silencer which had rotted through with a new mild steel one. I have replaced the water pump and the rotted original cooling hoses with the correct original style green hoses and wire clamps.
The engine runs well and the car drives, all hydraulics are working.
I have replaced the rear wheel cylinders, shoes and soft hoses. I have also replaced the rear trailing arm bushes and spring packings with a set of urethane ones.
I have installed 5 brand new Vredestein classic road tires, with new Michelin inner tubes and rim bands.
The frame is rock solid as are the main floors, boot floor, sills, wings, (inner and outer), boot lid, bonnet.
There are a few points of corrosion that need addressing. The battery tray area has corroded through due to acid contamination and requires metal letting in. At some point house style carpet and underlay had been installed, this held moisture where the seat runners were bolted though the floor resulting in some very small areas of corrosion that need metal letting in, I would stress that these areas are very small and are easily repaired, this corrosion is from the inside out the undersides of the floor pans are rust free.
There is a small corrosion area to part of the lower door skins, again a very small area easily repaired by letting in a piece of metal, and some corrosion to the lower portion of the front wings where they cover the sill panels, again very small areas that are easily repaired.
At some point in the past the RH front wing sustained some damage around the head light bucket area, all filler has been removed and some panel work will be required to get it back to the correct shape, although the headlamp bucket is installed.
At present I am continuing to work on the car as time permits, I have ordered a new gearbox cover and rear mount for the gearbox. And will start to pattern the repair panel for the battery shelf area.
The car is very original, as far as I can tell most of the original factory Damson paint is hidden under what remains of the the current top coat. The rear bodywork has never been apart and all panel fixings are original and the panel gaps are superb. I have had the front wings off the car to repair a very small hole in the LH sill and to clean out the debris from the areas where the wings overlap the front of the sill panels. All the original factory welding can be seen on the sill reveals which again is a rare thing these days.
This is an increasingly rare opportunity to own a very early, very original and solid production TR6 that can be re-commissioned/restored and will retain very nearly 100% of all of its original mechanical parts, down to the nuts and bolts, a very rare thing indeed these days and not something that can be said for many of the restored cars on the market today.
I am now continuing to work on the car, I have fitted the new gearbox tunnel cover, new headlights, made a small repair to the top frame.
Please feel free to contact me for more details, and to arrange viewing.
Price reflects a rarely found original car.
Apologies for the pictures, they are not very clear and I will upload better pictures shortly. Currently the passenger seat is out of the car while I work on it, I have the original air filter canister also.
All import fees and duty are paid. Needs an MOT and then can be UK registered.
This car could be made fit to pass an MOT with a few weekends work.
If you would like me to MOT and recommission or restore the car for you I would be happy to do so at very reasonable rates by separate negotiation. All work being done 'in house'.
I have restored several TR's to very high standard for clients over the years.
